Rating: ©©©©-3/4 chips (lip-smacking)
Here at Chip Review we think it’s pretty amazing that we live in a world where such similar products can taste so differently. We recently reviewed Cheetos Crunchy – Flamin’ Hot (a personal favorite of ours), and were pleasantly surprised by how much we equally liked Vitner’s offering of the same product.
Similarities: shape, and bright red in color – check. consequently, bright red fingertips – check. tongue tingling “spicy” acidic zing – check. addictive – check. But beyond that, we are pleased to say that these really are quite a bit different than Cheetos Crunchy – Flamin’ Hot. Most noticeable, and impressive, to Chip Review is the location of cheese among the ingredients list on the back. The simple fact that we can actually taste yummy cheese seasoning along with the spicy red seasoning is quite nice. Curl wise, Vitner’s are definitely not as crunchy or dense as Cheetos. All together, a very tasty snack and we feel they could just give Cheetos a run for their money (or at least, our money).
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
